Bristol Blue Glass moves to new studio
The Original Bristol Blue Glass Company is relocating to a new studio and shop on the Bath Road in Brislington, after securing new premises through property consultants Alder King.
The company, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has taken the retail showroom and workshop at 357-359 Bath Road on a new 10 year lease. The premises provide a total of 3,210 sq ft of accommodation, together with a rear yard.
Sharon Crapanzano of Bristol Blue Glass said: “We are very proud to be keeping this local, historical and magical profession alive by moving to more prominently-located premises in this our anniversary year.
“The new shop, together with a new website to follow later in the year, will be bursting with even more glass-blowing creativity and a wonderful range of new glass collections and gifts.”
Emma Smith, retail surveyor at Alder King, added: “The new shop’s position on the Bath Road, directly opposite the entrance to Arnos Vale Cemetery, will give Bristol Blue Glass greater visibility and the opportunity to benefit from passing footfall and traffic.”
Alder King acted on behalf of a private landlord; Bristol Blue Glass Company was unrepresented.
